iCopyright Named Licensing Agent for AP Content Published Online

Apr 18, 2008

iCopyright, a copyright service for online content, has entered into a digital content copyright protection and permission agreement with The Associated Press, providing online users of AP content with a web-based method to license and share AP stories and photos for a variety of commercial and educational uses. AP will display iCopyright links at the top and bottom of every AP-hosted story so users can use, share, and license content instantly. AP will encourage subscribers to add the iCopyright tags to the AP stories they publish on their own websites. Publishers that deploy iCopyright tags earn revenue from reuse licenses while preserving copyrights and brand awareness.
